Ice Cube

What's that? A comedy with the word "high" in the title that stars Ice Cube? I don't believe it. Deadline reports the supporting star of the 21 Jump Street franchise is teaming up with Due Date writing duo Alan Cohen & Alan Freedland for Rocky Mountain High, a new project set up at Universal Pictures. The studio picked up the project based on a five-page pitch that Ice Cube worked on himself with Jeff Kwatizetz. The rapper will star in the film, but unfortunately plot details haven't been revealed, so we don't exactly know what to expect. But if you know Ice Cube, that title probably gives us a pretty good idea. Read on!

As you probably know, marijuana was decriminalized in Colorado, and the Rocky Mountains just happen to be located in that state. So we're betting that there's some kind of plot dealing with that. Ice Cube has proven to be a surprisingly successful star on the big screen. You may not realize it, but he's been part of several franchises. There's the Friday trilogy, Are We There Yet? and the sequel, 21 Jump Street (soon to be a trilogy), xXx: State of the Union and now Ride Along, with a sequel on the way (and rumblings of plans for a Ride Along 3 already in the works too). Anyway, it's early days on Rocky Mountain High so stay tuned.
